Wife-Carrying Competition

Wife-Carrying Competition

First introduced in Sonkajärvi, Finland, wife carrying is a sport in which male competitors race through obstacles while each carrying a female teammate -- not necessarily their wife. Different types of carrying are included in the competition: piggyback, fireman's carry, or Estonian-style (pictured here). Major wife-carrying competitions are held in Sonkajärvi (where the prize is the woman’s weight in beer), Hong Kong, Wisconsin, Michigan and Maine. 960 1280

Swamp Soccer

Swamp Soccer

Swamp soccer is exactly what it sounds like: soccer played in a swamp or bog. It began as an exercise routine for soldiers since the squishy ground makes the sport more demanding, but it has since grown with the Swamp Soccer World Championship played annually on Vuorisuo Bog in Hyrynsalmi, Finland. 960 1280

Tar Barrels Festival

The town of Ottery St Mary, England, holds annual events around Guy Fawkes Night. The festivities include a 17th-century tradition of carrying barrels soaked in tar and set on fire while racing through the town.

Extreme Ironing

Extreme Ironing

Extreme ironing is part extreme sport and part performance art. The competition involves taking an ironing board to a remote location and ironing clothing. It all started in 1997 in Leicester, England, by resident Phil Shaw when he wanted to go rocking climbing instead of doing house chores … so he decided to combine them. It has grown into a worldwide phenomenon with participants vying for the most extreme locale -- ironing on mountainsides, in streets and even underwater. 960 1280

Madison Avenue

Madison Avenue

The ad men of Madison Avenue unleash their creative juices, and sometimes a little bit more, on Manhattan’s famed north-south avenue. Don a fedora like Mr. Draper, and explore the avenue’s famed architecture in style. Just don’t look too hard for Sterling Cooper’s offices at 405 Madison Avenue -- it doesn’t exist. 960 1280

NY Rail Travel

Work hard, play hard in Manhattan, and when evening comes, take the train up to the wife and kids in posh Westchester County. And so it goes for chain-smoking, debonair Don Draper. Leave behind the hustle-and-bustle of the Big Apple yourself, and take the Ethan Allen Express from NYC to Rutland, VT, passing through the Catskills and Vermont’s Green Mountains on the way. 960 1280

Betty and Don Draper's House

Betty and Don Draper's House

The fresh white paint, the perfectly manicured lawn … everything seems just a little too perfect. And for Don and Betty Draper, it is -- in fact, this house isn’t really located at 42 Bullet Park Road in Ossining, NY. It’s actually in Pasadena, CA. 960 1280

Sorry, Don, but you had it coming: The lying, the cheating -- Betty had no choice. See the Midtown Manhattan hotel where Don stayed after his wife gave him the boot. Of course, with its grand interior décor from posh mahogany furniture to luxurious suites, you may not ever want to leave. 960 1280

LA Music Center

LA Music Center

Ah, Roma! A city packed with ancient wonders -- but it was Betty’s Colosseum-high-hair we couldn’t keep our eyes off during her trip to the Eternal City with Don. Which may explain why location didn’t really matter so much; the episode was actually filmed at the Music Center in downtown LA -- a city landmark for the arts since it opened in 1964. 960 1280

“Should we drink before the meeting, after the meeting or both?” That is the question, and the guys and gals of Mad Men find the answer at this famous saloon on Third Avenue in Manhattan. Kick back with a selection of specialty cocktails, wine, beer and spirits. You’ll find plenty of options -- whether you swing by before, during or after a meeting. 960 1280

Oyster Bar

Oyster Bar

Make it a 3-martini power lunch at this iconic seafood restaurant in Grand Central Terminal’s lower level. Just don’t get too plastered on oysters and vodka if you have a big business meeting that same day -- unless, of course, your name is Roger Sterling, and it’s payback time for hitting on Don’s wife a few nights before. Bad move, Roger -- Don’s got your number. 960 1280

Dublin House

Dublin House

We knew Joan’s fiancé, Greg, was no good, especially after his behavior with Joan in Roger’s office one day. So when Greg says he’s been sitting in the Dublin House until 2 a.m. after being declined a medical residency, we say, “Stay there!” Of course, you may want to as well, and for all the right reasons: This Upper West Side Bar has some of the best Guinness this side of the pond. 960 1280

Bloomingdales

Bloomingdales

Oh, Pete, you’re such a bad, bad boy. Too bad Trudy didn’t realize as much before you rather ungraciously returned the ceramic chip-and-dip platter from her aunt here. (How could you?!) Fill your own “Little Brown Bag” up at this legendary department store on Third Avenue in Midtown. And don’t worry: Your secret’s safe with us if you return the chip and dip. 960 1280

The Pierre Hotel

We still don’t get why Peggy had a tryst with over-the-hill Duck Phillips -- and at this elegant hotel overlooking Central Park, too. (Seriously, Peggy, what were you thinking?!) Obliterate the memory from your mind, and enjoy the Pierre’s finer side, from its high ceilings and abundant natural light to a delectable evening for 2 at the hotel’s Sirio Ristorante. Men named “Duck” not invited. 960 1280

Bob's Big Boy Broiler

Welcome to the diner where lust turned to love: It all started with a milkshake -- it spilled, and Don got angry at his careless kid. But then the secretary-on-vacation-with-the-family, Megan, stepped in and cleaned up the mess and … Don’s heart melted. Visit the scene of it all at this iconic American diner in Downey, CA. 960 1280
